Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a fabulous time,the weather was good and the villa was as advertised.The first week my wife and I were on our own and the second week ,my son and daughter came out.My daughter brought her six month old baby boy.The high chair was supplied and also his cot. The pool was fantastic and was warm,the family loved it and so did the baby.Shops are close by and also some nice restaurants.My wife and I had no car for first week but everything we needed was in walking distance.We booked a taxi through the owners it was spotless and the driver could not have been more helpful.We shall use Algarveholidays again.Paramount for me was the security and the maid service .Peter.

Fabulous Villa in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This was our first villa holiday and as such we were unsure what to expect. However, from the moment we walked through the door we knew this was going to surpass all our previous holidays. The tranquil location, spacious villa and private pool were a recipe for success. The villa was just as described in the listing and was spotlessly clean and well-maintained. We received excellent service from the local agent who called by to check everything was to our satisfaction. Our children (ages 13 & 10) loved the villa so much we had to drag them away for a few days out and meals at the local restaurant. They were happy playing in the pool, playing table tennis and making full use of the wifi! Why be anywhere else? We enjoyed the use of the BBQ and also had everything we needed to cook a few meals at the villa. I have no hesitation in recommending Villa Clara.

Great Villa, Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the villa in early October for a week. We found the villa to have every thing we needed for a group of 4 adults 3 teenagers and 1 baby. The villa was extremely clean and had all the facilities we needed during our stay. The villa was nice and spacious with plenty of room for all of us. We found the maid service (she lives in the basement) to be excellellent during our stay. In particular the pool area was excellent with plenty of space for all of us. The only thing we would reccomend is to request that the pool is heated. We thought we would be ok without heating but on reflection we should of paid the extra for heating as was a bit cold at times. The location is great with supermarket and resturants within 10 minutes walk and the beach about 15 minutes away. The beach is beautifull with shops and resurants close by.

Also we found the management office who look after the property very helpful and looked after all of our needs.

Great property great location

  • 4 of 5

This was a family holiday with teenagers and adults , it was perfect location for the adults but a little out of the way for the teenagers 15 - 20 euros in taxi to the Old town.

The villa had everything you would expect, and we all had a great holiday and Gale Beach is perfect

We had airport transfers booked through the agent that picked us up and dropped us off on time

we would have appreciated being able to stay in the villa a little longer on departure day as we had booked late flights home , but the agent addressed this and found us somewhere to go for the day

all in all a great time had by all concerned

Great property in a quiet location

  • 4 of 5

We rented the main house and the small apartment below and made use of the barbecue for a 50th birthday celebration. Having our own personal pool was terrific the children spent every opportunity they could playing in the pool. The local supermarket was only five minutes walk which was quite handy, the beach was a bit of a trek for the toddlers but definitely worth a visit. Little to none local transport so we were very reliant on taxis which could accommodate up to 8 people all equipped with convertible child seats. Having 2 washing machines came in handy with children and keeping us in clean towels. Also with so many people a dishwasher was a real asset.

Pros: The welcome basket had an assortments of food and drink, just what you need after settling in. Comfortable clean property situated in a quiet cul-de-sac, great for families of mixed ages and sizes. There was an assortment of local restaurants within walking distance good quality food at reasonable prices. For seafood lovers the 'A Grelha Do Ti-Manel' authentic Portuguese food ate here 3 times. The principal office was about 20 mins walk away where we booked discounted excursions to ZooMarina and a trip to Lisbon. The highlight of our visit was visiting 'Old Town, Albufeira' I would highly recommend a visit here, the view, the atmosphere, winding cobbled streets, pavement cafes and restaurants. A place where when you turn another corner you want to explore more.

Cons: It would have been helpful if someone had met us at the villa and shown us around and how everything worked, after 10 mins of searching in vain I had to ask the maid where the apartment was. Despite being advertised as daily maid service, she only came once during our visit. When you go away as such a large group you do not necessarily want to all do the same activities each day together we were only given 1 set of keys which was quite problematic. On one occasion a male appeared in the middle of the afternoon by our pool without announcing himself or why he was there this was very disturbing especially when you have young children wandering around the grounds. It would of been even more disturbing if someone was sunbathing topless.

Overall we all an enjoyable stay despite the cons which I'm sure the proprietor will take on board, I would recommend this villa as a great place for families, I would definitely go back to Albuferia.

A very spacious property in an quiet location

  • 5 of 5

The property was an excellent size to accommodate a large family or group. We rented the main house and the apartment, travelling as a family group which included 3 mothers who would normally be fighting for kitchen space! There were no such arguments in this property as the main house kitchen was very spacious with an additional kitchen in the apartment. The maid was excellent, she even made our beds on the days she was in if we'd been too lazy to make them ourselves! The local supermarket was about 5 minutes walk away and stocked everything you could need. Next to the supermarket is an excellent cafe selling wonderful cakes and lunchtime snacks at very reasonable prices. They were also open late into the evening if wanting a beer or 2! The local beach was about 20 mins slow walk ( with young children) but well worth a visit. The children loved exploring the small caves and climbing the rocks. If wanting to explore away from the main beach, a short stroll around the rocks and secluded coves can be found. There was also an excellent camouflage themed outdoor smoothie bar along a small cliffe above the beach. It also sold food, which we did not sample but was well worth a visit , my 2 boys thought it was an adventure playground! The principal office was about 20 mins walk away, with a small selection of bars, restaurants and shop, we found the staff in the office very friendly and helpful. We booked a trip to aqualand through them by taxi and found a very prompt and courteous service. This villa was excellent for a relaxing family holiday away from the hustle and bustle of a busy town.This was our first villa holiday and we found every aspect excellent, I have every intention of booking again through Algarve villa holidays next year. Thank you for an excellent holiday, no going back to sharing a hotel pool for me!

Great property, Great service...

  • 5 of 5

Great property with a holiday company that know how to offer great service. Any holiday house is a bit of a gamble and I have done lots. This is one not to worry about. The house is in excellent condition and the garden and the pool (deeper than most pools which was nice) are great. Note for families unlike france you don't have to have a fence around the pool so for young kids please take note (For 3 boys ages 5, 6 and 11 ideal all can swim at least 10 m so not the worry). The daily maids service and pool man were very efficient and did a great job. You can walk to the local beach which is superb along with the restaurants overlooking them (albeit a bit pricey). We went in October so suspect not as busy as the summer which for me is ideal, because this area is set up for holiday makers so I imagine it is very busy in August. Only criticism for me is the area is full of brits (I like to get away and experience somewhere different) and you don't get a feel for the culture. To do this head for the hills and a traditional restaurant on the way west from Monchique which is great value and superb food. Also for body boarding and stunning natural beaches head to the west coast (need a car). The holiday company were great and people arrived the following day to check we had everything we needed. Would definately book again for the house and the sun.
